Tonight we honored the grandparents of the players. They were announced between games. We also had Coaches vs Cancer Night. The girls had pink headbands and pink socks. Coaches were wearing sneakers and pink ribbons. Donations were made throughout the night to help fund cancer research.
The game tonight had a lot of ups and downs. Lexi got off to a great start and scored 13 of our 17 point in the first quarter. Jeanie did a great job of feeding her in the low post when she attacked the paint. We went on a good run to start the second half. We were knocking down shots, and causing turnovers. Unfortunately, we didn’t keep the killer instinct and Southwood got back into the game.
We did a nice job of getting to the line tonight, but we struggled to make them until the fourth quarter. Southwood did a fantastic job of cutting it to within two points with about 1:30 left in the game. From that point on, I thought the girls started playing like we did to start the second half and we were able to pull away with a nice win.
